General information about our online courses

Dear students,
currently all courses in the field of DaF take place exclusively in online form. You do not have to be present in person. Before you plan a trip, please contact our information and consulting office in any case. The DaF/ZFA department will continue to offer all attendance consultation hours until further notice. On our homepage, we always provide information about the organization of the winter semester as well as the summer semester to the extent that we can obtain information and make plans ourselves. Should you have any questions that go beyond the information provided there, please send us an e-mail to daf-info@rub.de. We will answer them promptly. However, please understand that we cannot answer all questions at all times, as new developments will require further planning and decisions.

Intensive Preparatory Courses

We currently offer online courses in preparation for university studies. The courses last 10 weeks and comprise 20 teaching units per week. You work independently with the materials we provide on the learning platform Moodle. You participate in online lessons (via Zoom) and receive feedback on your performance. Plan on about 5 hours of work per day. A final exam is held at the end of the course. If you pass it, you will be allowed to join the next level of course.

Registration for the online courses October-December (07.10.-16.12.2021) is already closed.
Until 12.11.2021 you can register for the preparatory online course (13.01.-23.03.2022) - but only if you already have an applcation number.
In January 2022, our courses will be conducted exclusively online as well. We will not be able to offer any in-class lessons. Probably, but depending on the pandemic situation, there will be a combination of face-to-face and online teaching or examinations in variable proportions from prob. April 2022.
